Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

This website is a question and answer only site. No prescriptions are provided.

You should speak to your Dr regarding your sleep problems to see if a prescription medication is indicated. You can also try an over the counter sleep aid.

Advil pm can be used for short term sleep problems. It is a combination of a pain reliever and antihistamine.

Diphenhydramine is also effective and safe for most people. The brand name is Benadryl.

I hope this helps.
